Prison ship

The following three records cover the results of a search on "Furey" in the on line prison ship database. A quick look at the details reveals what could be a poignant family tail of a type that we could not appreciate today. All three come from Co. Sligo and each of them was convicted of larceny. The first to travel was Thomas Furey (age not given) sentenced 28/6/1837 and followed by Rosanna (age 24) sentenced 28/6/1848 and finally Bessy (age 16) sentenced 1/7/1851. We should not speculate but were these three related? Did Thomas go first and then wait for the other two younger Furey's - were they his sisters, daughters or cousins?

They may not have been related but that doesn't stop the mind from wandering. Are there any descendants out there that may know the story and care to share it?

Thanks.
